ok thank you
actually thinking about it this is a rather general question, as you can imagine pursuing a claim is a long and complex process so I cannot just tell you 'do this and you will be successful', so what specifically would you like to know about this?
do you think i can get throught it myself or do you think i need a lawyer and if so what for - i have filled and submitted the ET1 form, been to preliminary hearing and as part of the orders given supplied scott schedule and schedule of loss which i constructed myself
does citizen advice bureau provide free legal aid ?
This is a very subjective question, it is like asking do you think a person is able to learn a specific skill – the answer would depend on the actual person, their natural ability, how much effort they put in, whether they find certain aspects challenging and so on. One person may have no problems taking this all the way to completion, someone else may find it quite challenging and unnerving. I have seen examples of both. The fact you do not officially need legal representation however will give you an idea that it is certainly possible to do this alone and the tribunal will also take that into account and will not expect you to behave or do things expected of a lawyer.
In terms of representation then CAB would not represent you in tribunal, they can give you basic advice e on the side but they will not appear on your behalf. Also there is no legal aid for tribunal claims.
There is one organisation that may provide free representation but they will assess each case and decide if they can help, but they will be quite busy – no harm in trying them: www.thefru.org.uk.
Another option is to try and find an employment lawyer who would take this on a no win no fee basis. You will probably have to search for them and phone around but there are some lawyers when could do that if your claim is considered strong enough.
You are welcome
would you be able to take me on for this case?
Sadly not as we cannot take on any work through this site, it is against the rulers we work under
I need to leave the office shortly, if you need me to clarify anything before I go?

I cannot personally represent you but you can find a local solicitor to you here:http://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/
